It wouldn’t be Call of Duty without the AK-47. Black Ops Cold War will see the return of the beast, and this time it cannot be tamed. After being a disappointing Assault Rifle in Modern Warfare, the AK-47 has come back with a fire rate which is suitable to the meta, and packs a mean punch with every bullet. With its typical iron sights and a slight recoil, honing in on the right attachments is crucial. So, here are the best AK-47 class & attachments in Black Ops Cold War.


With multiplayer, the AK-47 is best used in mid-range gunfights. Up close it will be outgunned by a submachine gun unless your movement is on point, and at range, you will likely get a .50 cal chamber in the head before emptying your magazine. Optimising speed and precision is key in multiplayer.

  • Barrel - 15.5” Ultralight
  • Underbarrel - Infiltrator Grip
  • Handle - Speed Tape
  • Stock - Wire Stock
  • Mag - Taped Mag

Both the wire stock and tape mag will increase sprint to fire time and aim down sights speed which will be crucial in most gunfights. Speed tape will decrease the reload time making for a quick return to the fight, and both the infiltrator grip and ultralight barrel will increase the aim movement speed. This combination compliments each other well and will make sure your AK-47 can drop multiple opponents in quick succession. These are the best AK-47 class & attachments for Black Ops Cold War.


Here’s where we may see the AK-47 shine. The Assault Rifle will be a perfect weapon for Warzone as it deals a lot of damage and can be crafted to have little recoil. Over range it may add to the plethora of weapons in Verdansk that can shred through armour like no tomorrow. Players can get used to this in multiplayer for now, especially on game modes like Fireteam: Dirty Bomb, ahead of Warzone’s alignment in December.

  • Barrel - 18.2” Takedown
  • Underbarrel - Foregrip
  • Optic - Axial Arms 3x
  • Muzzle - Suppressor
  • Ammo - VDV 50 Round Fast Mag

For the most effective results, a sight is necessary for the AK-47 over long-range, as the iron sights make it tough to see opponents that are in the distance. A 3x holo sight will give enough magnification on the sights to remain accurate and visual. The takedown barrel, foregrip and VDV 50 Round mags will all contribute for a greater damage range and a reduced recoil, whilst the suppressor will keep you off the radar. With this blend, you’ll have the best AK-47 class & attachments in Black Ops Cold War to prepare for Warzone.
